  • Research has suggested that impulse control disorders are significantly more prevalent among individuals with Parkinson's disease, particularly with regards to pathological gambling and hypersexuality, and has further suggested that these disorders are significantly and substantively affected by the use of dopamine agonists. (healthplexus.net)
  • The cluster of neuropsychiatric sequelae known as impulse-control disorders has been of particular interest in recent years, perhaps owing to the potentially disastrous effects that such behaviors can have on individuals and families. (healthplexus.net)
  • The papers in this Research Topic will review a number of aspects of cognition in mood disorders which are important areas of clinical and research focus. (frontiersin.org)

  • Following systematic review, we identified 54 task-fMRI studies published in the last decade comparing adults with OCD (n=1186) to healthy adults (n=1159) using tasks of affective and non-affective cognition. (nih.gov)
  • There are, however, some studies that suggest that some of the newer atypical antipsychotics e.g. aripiprazole, clozapine, quetiapine, olanzapine, risperidone and ziprasidone, may provide minimal benefits in certain specific areas of cognition. (blogspot.co.uk)
  • The mission of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD) was to coordinate and conduct research in five areas of cognition: belief formation, language, memory, person perception, and reading. (edu.au)
  • The nature of cognitive training programs, often building on laboratory measures of cognition, may reduce how inherently interesting (i.e., fun) they are, limiting their uptake outside of paid research studies. (centerwatch.com)
  • The neurobehavioral impact extends from simple measures of cognition (i.e., attention and reaction time) to far more complex errors in judgment and decision making, such as medical errors, discussed below and in Box 4-1 . (nih.gov)
  • The findings offer an alternate starting point for scientists to develop therapies for these debilitating disorders. (psychcentral.com)
  • This book will be indispensable in providing a broad understanding of the field for researchers specialising in specific disorders and the sections on the application of research findings to treatment interventions will be of particular interest to clinicians. (wiley.com)
  • Scientists from multiple disciplines come to the ARC to link theoretical models and research findings in the cognitive sciences that will benefit those with cognitive disorders. (edu.au)
  • The potential of a mobile app as a valid and easily accessible tool for measuring cognitive function in adults with major depressive disorder (MDD) was demonstrated in study findings presented at the Psych Congress 2020, held virtually from September 10 to 13, 2020. (clinicaladvisor.com)
  • The VaD patients with insular lesions exhibited impaired Taste Cognition Test findings. (unboundmedicine.com)
  • In a randomized, controlled, parallel-arm clinical trial of adjuvant memantine vs placebo in euthymic patients with bipolar disorder, memantine improved several cognitive domains and also demonstrated increased hippocampus neuronal viability on imaging scans of the brain. (medscape.com)
  • So we saw that people did better on tests of cognition, and also saw biological changes occurring at the same time in the brain. (medscape.com)
  • We believe that studying gene networks in the brain can give us extra clues about the genetic cause of neurodevelopmental disorders and of their neurological comorbidities," said Associate Professor Enrico Petretto, senior co-author of the study and head of the Systems Genetics of Complex Disease Laboratory at Duke-NUS. (psychcentral.com)
  • The text is organized using an information processing approach to acquired language disorders, and thus can be set apart from texts that rely upon a more traditional, syndrome-based approach (e.g., stroke, dementia, and traumatic brain injury). (indigo.ca)
  • We hypothesized that impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and incident glucose disorders have detrimental effects on global cognition and brain volume. (garvan.org.au)
  • Stable IFG did not show greater decline in global cognition or brain volumes compared to normal. (garvan.org.au)
  • Incident glucose disorders, like diabetes, are associated with accelerated decline in global cognition and brain volumes in non-demented elderly, whereas stable IFG is not. (garvan.org.au)
  • The various disorders of object recognition and spatial cognition primarily involve damage to areas responsible for these brain functions, such as the Broca's Area, the Wenicke's Area, and the structures that surround them. (explorable.com)
  • Background: Converging lines of evidence suggest that Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) may play a central role in the pathogenesis of Bipolar Disorder (BD), thus representing a valid biomarker of the disease. (elsevier.com)
